The adr compliance sticker was unreadable when I got my bar, so I removed it before I painted it.

Any idea if that would be an issue?

Mine is the same, a phone call to subaxtreme for 1 sticker? No idea if they want to see the bar or not.

My SubaXtreme sump guard came with the compliance sticker "pre-removed", but it still has "subaxtreme" cast into it. Since all SubaXtreme guards, etc, are compliant, this should be sufficient. That's my thinking, anyway.

Each state (Australia) pretty much has bull bars covered. This is the link for WA

http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/media..._vs_ci_112.pdf

and Victoria

https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/~/me...s/vsi1web.ashx

and the ADRs

I would be wary of home-made bull bars or bars that come from other vehicles if you live in Australia. If your vehicle is fitted with air bags it is not acceptable to any state's regulations to fit a bar that is not ADR compliant for your make and model vehicle. You risk getting a defect, fine or having your insurance company turn their back on you in the event of an accident.

^ yes, as it has been discussed many times in the past, I believe Oz locals here are aware of the risks and are prepared to accept such risk.

Thst's all very well until they run up the back of my car and their insurance company bails on them. It's not only the owner/driver that takes the risk, its every road user. Perhaps the off-road message of "tread lightly" should be adapted for on-road driving. Perish the thought of more people driving unlicensed in unregistered, uninsured vehicles saying " I'm prepared to take the risk" This is not an issue of personal choice, it's one of social responsibility just as much as not ripping up the environment when driving in the bush.

Indeed, any discussion re Oz compliance in this thread is off-topic. Also we have a special section for such discussion here: https://offroadsubarus.com/forumdisplay.php?f=57
